4 Questions Answered
Q. Would a lawyer be willing to review my exit documents from a company post termination to make sure they're legit?
A: Many employment lawyers will review your severance agreement and explain its terms and enforceability to you for a fee. However, we would also want to discuss your employment history with the company, your experience working there, and what led to your termination to ensure that your rights were not violated.
Q. Can I take legal action to receive the total compensation I should have been paid while working there?
A: Yes. You can take action. You should hurry though because you are running up against the statute of limitations. You should be able to use the documentation and text messages that you already have in your possession. You may take the restaurant to small claims court for the difference in the amount that you were paid and what you are actually owed. You will be able to seek double the amount owed under the NC Wage and Hour Act (as liquidated damages) because it involves back wages.
Q. How long can a previous employer legally expect payback for income that was accidentally overpaid during employment?
A: First, it should be determined if the employee was actually overpaid. If there was an overpayment, the employer may ask them to return the money. If the employee refuses to return the money, the employer may take them to court to recover it.
